the economy is right now. every economist predicted roughly 90,000 to 120,000. this economy doesn't feel like the employment improved this level. it is just -- maybe it's a coincidence that the month before the election, we have a number that comes out 1/10th below when the president took office. >> sean: jack welch is not the only one tawing of this timely development. listen to what business insider said on fox business new york this morning. >> i feel like i am watching a movie, a suspense movie. because there is no way in the world these numbers are accurate. and somebody needs to dig real deep into this. how in the world, miraculously, we have the best flz 30 years, right before the election? somebody needs to do an investigation, like they are doing an investigation in libbia. they need to investigate the numbers because there is no way in the world these numbers are accurate? >> the same administration not telling the truth about benghazi and libya and the death of four americans. there are very important questions that need to be asked of the obama administration. when you look at the
economy. >> 7.8. >> 7.8. >> there's no way that's right. >> there are some people out here who don't like this number. >> the harsh back and forth. >> over today's jobs reports. >> now we've sea got jobbers. >> business pioneer jack welch calls these numbers into question. >> these numbers don't smell right. >> jack welch was a successful businessman. >> this is about asking questions. >> on this subject he has absolutely no idea what he's talking about. congressman west, take it away. >> you can't deny the numbers. >> don't challenge my intelligence. >> there's not a shred of evidence they've ever manipulated this number. >> people have stopped looking for work. >> more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> that is definitely not the case. >> completely wrong. >> people are not giving up. they're gomg back into the work force. >> i think i get the last word. >> i won't allow that to happen and that is why i'm running for a second term of president of the united states. >>> good evening, i'm ezra klein in for lawrence o'donnell. it's 32 days until the election, though we
for the last two months finding the economy actually added 181,000 jobs up from 141,000 in august. and in august the economy added 142,000 jobs up from the initially lack luster 96,000 initially reported. so there were in total 200,000 new jobs on this jobs report. president obama tried to put today's good news jobs report in context, campaigning in virginia. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past 2 1/2 years. this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. more americans entered the work force, more people are getting jobs. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> mitt romney also campaigning in virginia. not as impressed. >> we don't have to stay in the path we've been on. we can do better. there was a report that just came out this morning on job creation this last month. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. and the unemployment rate as you know this year has come down very slowl
economy from the middle out rather than from the top down. look, i know vice president biden. i know he's looking forward to having a spirited exchange about ideas. i simply hope this, i hope what paul ryan does is something fundamentally different than what mitt romney does, and that is i hope he comes with just a modicum of truth and willing to defend their policies rather than to admit somehow they don't exist. >> and, finally, will we see a different game from president obama in the next debate? >> well, again, i think now that barack obama has had the opportunity to meet both mitt romneys, i don't doubt that he'll make some adjustments. i know he's looking forward to the next debate. >> robert gibbs, thanks very much for your time this morning. >> george, thanks for having me. >> let's hear from the romney campaign. ed gillespie joining us this important. ed, thanks for getting up this morning. you heard robert right there, masterful, theatrical, fundamentally dishonest. i guess his basic point now about governor romney on his tax plan is either that he's not telling the truth abou
, how would you describe the jobs economy and right now? guest: this is the weakest recovery we have had since world war ii. the jobs numbers each month, we have averaged around 145,000 jobs created per month this year. that is barely enough to keep up with the growth of the working age population. and it has been a somewhat brazilian recovery in that there have been a lot of fears that we would go back into recession at various times and that has not happened. the overall economy has grown roughly 2% since the recession ended in june, 2009. that is a fairly weak growth rate, particularly after the death of the recession. by many measures, this is easily the worst since the great depression corporate -- the great depression. the modest and sometimes weak growth we have had has made it very difficult for the unemployed. we have long-term unemployed, those are of work for six months or even a year, that has been a record -- at record levels. ben bernanke has long term crashes -- the prices of long- term unemployment. -- the crisis of long-term unemployment. host: let's begin with a call fr
to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> eliot: not if you're mitt romney. the g.o.p. contender talked down the jobs numbers and the economy at an abingdon, virginia, rally. >> romney: there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. the unemployment rate as you noted this year has come down very, very slowly. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> eliot: mitt just can't stand good news on the economy, and neither can his friends on the right, including knocks fuss anchor stuart varney who suspect politics were behind the jobs numbers. >> oh how convenient that the rate dropped below 8% for the in 43 months five weeks before the election. >> eliot: unbelievable jobs numbers, these guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers. tweeting in regards to today's jobs report, i agree with jack welch, chicago style politics is at work here. more about jack welch and g.e. and accurate numb
got on the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >>> the economy is again the central focus as jobs numbers drop the unemployment rate below 8%. >> we made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. >> a sign of recovery just as voters head to the polls? we cover it all this morning, the policy fights emerging from the debate and the politics. what does the debate reveal about these two men. plus, a preview of the vice presidential debate this coming week. this morning, a special panel, joining us, obama campaign senior adviser, robert gibbs, former republican presidential candidate, newt gingrich. democratic strategist, hilary rosen. republican strategist, mike murphy, and nbc's chief white house correspond correspondent and political director, chuck todd. >>> and finally, what you haven't heard from arnold schwarzenegger this week, a revealing conversation with the former california governor. he talks politics and his personal failings. >> what would you like your sons to learn from your mistakes. >> i
white house saying about all of this? >> they're effectively saying that the economy, while it's still weak, is showing signs that the president's policies are working, that his agenda is finally getting traction in the economy. here's what the president had to say. >> there are too many middle class families that are still struggling to pay the bills. they were struggling long before the crisis hit. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try and talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> that was friday right after the jobs numbers came out. i'll point out two meaningful things about those jobs numbers. one, you recall when his stimulus plan cameut somebody in his administration said with the stimulus plan. it was never a promise, a projection. symbolically it's meaningful this is now below 8%. also now it's fallen for the first time not because fewer people are looking for jobs. actually, the number of people looking for jobs rose slightly. so it's two pieces of good news for the obama campaig
for the american recovery. somebody said obama didn't know anything about the economy. well, forget that for now. the national unemployment rate fell to, count it, 7.8%. 114,000 jobs were added to the payrolls. an additional 86,000 were added to revisions for july and august. the labor force grew, my friends, by 418,000, which means the drop in unemployment is not due to people giving up on looking for work, which is a great republican talking point. president obama broke the news to supporters during a rally in virginia today. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. more americans entered the work force, more people are getting jobs. >> the president made clear the economy is not out of the woods. it's never going to be out of the woods. look where we're going. there are still a lot of people who are waiting for the recovery to reach them. >> we've still got too many friends and neighbors who are looking for work. there are too many middle class families that are still struggling to pay the bills. they were struggling long befo
't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. >> what about those recent numbers in the latest job report and showing a dip in the unemployment. former chairman jack welch is skeptical. meaning that employers added a modest 114,000 jobs and the drop comes at a critical time for the president who is coming off a weak debate performance with romney. joining us is new york times best selling author out with the latest book. ann coulter. at this point in time the president said we will be at 5.6 and enjoying that part of the economy and a more comfortable position and now they are running with this new number. what is your response. >> it is noticeable that a lot of economist are saying this is not possible. you would need more than 114,000 jobbings. i don't think it matters except to broadcasting tv shows or writing for newspaper what number they throw up on the screen. people know they are out of work and in jobs and they are way overqualified for and working part-time. so many people are going out of business and under working now. 23 million unemployed difference
for a fourth day of losses. the dow down triple digits near session lows right now. the economy is "modestly growing." that has not turned the market around. the biggest laggers on the dow, chevron, alcoa, and caterpillar. facing a broad-based selloff. across the board, we will keep our eye on those stocks for you. no surprise to see alcoa drop in today. kicking off earnings after the bell yesterday beat estimates but cut global demand, that outlook anyway and that stock is suffering. yum much better after his report, shares are rallying this morning. apple flipping two days of losses, in green territory. shares are up as well expecting a smaller version of the popular ipad coming next week. of course we will be covering it for you on fox business. traders on the new york stock exchange, cme group and the nymex. not even sure what to call this report today out of the fed. >> neutral and unexciting, that is what we got. the facts and the data we're getting, the market trending based upon third-quarter earnings pretty much telegraphed into the market. quite interesting to me how we drifted low
it a cliff but you should have spasms a year ender that could take the whole economy under when all the bush tax cuts phase out and all the automatic spending cuts kick in, a one-two punch that the most optimistic economies say will not the recovery for a loop, millions of americans likely to lose their jobs and millions of american families likely to face thousands more in taxes. "new york times" says the cliff could be more like a slope. if congress doesn't move fast, kick the recovery or maybe the country goodbye. it is the story that no one is talking about. you have mentioned it, but we are looking at the abyss and no one is touching it. >>guest: what is amazing to me, this is the most predictable, avoidable financial crisis we have ever had in the history of this country. you are so right, if the bush tax cuts expire and all the automatic spending cuts go into play, meaning the himmation -- elimination of the a.t.m. affecting 30 million people, the tax holidays goes around, unemployment benefits go away, it will are horrendous, 14 of 17 economists now say it will put us in a recession

children. what i want to think about is a future that has jobs. >> the ad goes on to say the economy is important to women. >> a victory for the obama campaign on early voting in ohio. a federal appeals court in the buckeye state just reinstated early voting on the three final days before election day. the ruling means that people in the key battle ground state can continue to cast their ballots. depending on the decision of the local border of elections that is. the obama camp filed that lawsuit arguing that everyone should have a chance to vote on those days. >> and the early voting is now under way in florida. absentee ballots are in the mail. yesterday miami-dade county mailed out 170,000 ballots. officials say voting by mail has exploded. in fact more than half of voters cast their ballots by mail or during early voting in the last general election. >>> in today's strategy talk, september jobs report came out just in the nick of time for president obama after this week's tough debate performance. but the honeymoon only lasted five minutes before a tweet by former g.e. ceo jack w
the election's all about the economy and both men were trading jabs today in the battleground state of virginia. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> when i'm president of the united states, that unemployment rate is going to come down not because people are giving up and dropping out of the work force, but because we're creating more jobs. i will create jobs and get america working again. >> let's get right to tonight's big story. with senator john mccain, the arizona senator and former presidential candidate joining me now. welcome to you, senator. >> thank you, piers. >> we are going to come to the debate in a moment. you've been one of the only people who debated both barack obama and mitt romney so you're in a unique place to tell me what you made of the new style romney and indeed, obama. before we get there, though, today's big news on the jobs front. whichever way you spin this from the republican side, this has to be good news not only for the p
gingrich, this is really about the economy. new jobs numbers came out on friday. are they a game changer in terms of how people perceive the economy? this is "the washington post" front page. certainly not something that the romney team wanted to see. the line graph showing 7.8% unemployment when obama takes office in january 2009. here we are in september of 2012. lowest since he took office. does this change anything? >> sure. i think it was a significant help to the president. imagine it came out at 8.2 following that debate. people would have entered this weekend saying that's close to the end. so i think it's part of the whole process. this campaign will go down to the end, i think. it's going to be one of the most interesting campaigns in american history. and i think you're going to see it go back and forth some over the next week. on the other hand, friday, the international monetary fund said probably no recovery until 2018. and that's a very sobering number. >> robert gibbs, it is particularly weak. you have 40% of those who have been out of work, out of work for six months or
's still the economy. campaigning in virginia coal country, mitt romney tried to dig through the latest jobs numbers. to make the case, he has not hit just yet. >> fewer new jobs created this month than last month and the unemployment rate, as you know to this year, has come down very slowly. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> still, one of romney's key metrics on the president's handling of the economy went up in smoke when the nation's unemployment rate dipped below 8%. >> 88% unemployment for over, what 43 months. >> we still have unemployment above 8%. >> he told us to get us back to work and hold unemployment for 8%. >> month after month, after month. >> it's a political bar rising. proposing statement at the first presidential debate. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. if i'm president, i will help create 12 million new jobs in this country with rising incomes. >> reporter: but romney notes the president has fallen short of estimates set by the own economic advis
condition about the economy. >> it comes down to trust. therefore we have to trust him generally. and his position about aboion has flipped all over the place. >> it hasn't. and what he is referring to let me put the allegation to you, the allegation that he was saying before that i want to repeal row versus wade and i want the power to revert to states and now he is saying he has no plans with the power to refer to abortion. >> he is referring to whether or not there were piles of legislation in congress that he is pursuing in his presidency. and he has said it yet today that we will not be funding abortion with tax pay or money. he is a pro life president and people at the point of conception deserve the freedoms as preserved by our constitut n constitution. this is a rabbit trail. you want to talk about trust. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that is trust. if a politician changes his position on issues do you see it as a cynical exercise? >> no. listen, i hear what you are saying. i think it is possible to learn things about legislation and determine things as you go
the number itself. plus, the good news about the last two months. the economy created more jobs than previously estimated. there are people who don't like this number at all. leading the band is the legendary ceo of general electric, jack welsh. here's the tweet you put out this unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. and i'm just wondering, i understand the way it works the president gets a heads up on the unemployment number 4:00 the day before and has to keep it to himself. you're saying in your tweet this morning that the news went the other way, the people working for the president somehow got the bureau of labor statistics and played with the numbers so it's down below 8 today. how does it work from your perspective? what happened here? >> all i can talk about are some of the numbers. we had 600,000 government jobs added in the last two months. we had 873,000 jobs by a household survey, which is a total estimate, from 50,000 phone calls. of those 600,000 were temporary workers. chris, these numbers are all a series of ass
